Should college level coaches be permitted to recruit players as young as 8th grade?
imabench

Con

I believe that college coaches should not recruit to people who are in 8th grade, the children are too young, a wide majority of them show no exceptionally gifted skill, it is out of the jurisdiction of college coaches to recruit in middle schools, coaches can already recruit four years in advance for athletes, it gives children the wrong message, it distracts children from academics at an earlier age to focus on sports instead of their education, and middle schoolers can be brainwashed to believe just about anything that college coaches fill theri heads with.

I will expand on my arguments in round 2, other than that,

I extend my argument about how College coaches should not recruit 8th graders because
- The children are too young,
- A wide majority of them show no exceptionally gifted skill,
- It is out of the jurisdiction of college coaches to recruit in middle schools,
- Coaches can already recruit four years in advance for athletes,
- It gives children the wrong message,
- It distracts children from academics at an earlier age to focus on sports instead of their education,
- Middle schoolers can be brainwashed to believe just about anything that college coaches fill their heads with.
